In addition to Germanic/European blood, and Germanic/European heritage, things which are most certainly quinessential to being considered a Germanic/European descent person, it has also been said that one has to have a "Germanic mindset", and also think and act Germanic as well, but how does one measure that and determine who's way of thinking is Germanic (Northern European) and whose is not?

And that has got me thinking, is there really a "Germanic personality" cookie cutter carbon copy personailty ? Or are we all different in our ideas, concepts, and overall mindset? Just how diverse is the mindset of Northern European people?

Now my question is, is there really a "Germanic personality" as in a cookie cutter carbon copy personality comes genetically standard in all people of Northern European heritage? Or are we all different in our ideas, concepts, and overall mindset, that there is really no "Germanic personality" but specific personalities pertaining to each Germanic individual? Are all Germanic descended people A and not B, C , D, E and so on? Or are some Germanics A, some B, some C and so on? Can it be scientifically and genetically proven or just experiental (observation)? Or if there is somewhat of a Germanic personality, do ALL Germanics possess it?

Are there some aspect of the Europid personality that are cookie cutter/carbon copy? Can one look for extra European admixture not only in someones appearance, but also in their way of thinking? Out of all personality and psychology types, is there anything at all that a Germanic person certainly CANNOT be or MUST possess in order to be Germanic (All Germanics are____, No Germanics are___)? Also one of my motivations is to identify personality types (and absence of) that are only found in racial others, if such a thing exists.

If yes, then what are they? Are Germanic people all the same? My guess is we all share a common ground somewhere, besides our heritage coming from Germanic parts of Europe.


Also, what are your thoughts on people with a fully Northern European ancestral heritage, but their thought process and personality is not typical for people of their race race and are more psychologically similar to people of extra-European origin in some ways. Are they still European because their ancestry is Northern European European or are they disqualified from the race?

For example,a person with all four of their grandparents of completely Bavarian descent, and they are proven 100% Bavarian with genealogy and DNA testing, but is a Type B personality, extrovert, does not stress out about things, and not reserved at all and likes to have lengthy conversations with people when visiting other countries. I'm sorry to break this, but my grandfather of German heritage would be classified as an extrovert. If you're thinking about banning me, please see my DNA results. I'm 100% European, but nevertheless quite perplexed about how someone with completely Northern European ancestry can have a grandfather with such a strange personality because reading through this forum people here seem dominately introverted and having the type A personality as opposed to the type B .

And what about someone who acts like a Germanic and has a Germanic mindset but their grandparents don't? Are there people of Germanic (Northern European) heritage who deviate from typical Germanic mindset?

Stubbornness, fierceness, fury. Honesty, hospitality, indomitable, integrity, trustworthy. Child-like trust. Pragmatic. Warlike.

These are some descriptors that I can give to our people.

I actually laughed at this--but then I remembered I'm (5/8) Germanic and only weakly smiled at it, since it means I can't be amused by anything. :|

Yes, there are genetic and environmental components to personality. There have to be, just like with any other human trait. But that doesn't mean everyone within one racial/cultural group must have the same personality. There will always be those who are more introverted and those who are more extroverted, those who are more serious and those who are more lighthearted. That we even have the word 'personality' in our vocabulary is proof.

That must be the 3/8 non-Germanic part of you then. Pure Germanics don't joke, laugh, cry, nag, complain, steal, lie and have nightmares. If you display one or more of these symptoms, you can be sure some non-Germanic admixture has slipped in along the way.

I'm partially extroverted and usually like to be around others, but require a good chunk of time to myself (like right now) to get my feelings and thoughts together.

I usually get burned out from being in a social setting not enough alone time will eventually turn my mind into scrambled eggs with irritability galore.
